Jefferson Elementary School

Running Club

The Jefferson Running Club is starting soon! 


For those new to Running Club, students in grade 1 through 5 run during their lunch recess (plus 10 minutes of their flex time) for a 30 minute period. They have the opportunity to run around either the grass perimeter of the school grounds/Van Voorst Park or around the Fern Cul-de-sac (depending on field conditions). Three times around the fields is about 1 mile. Kids will receive a chain when they sign up, followed by the chance to earn a colorful plastic foot charm for each mile they run during the JRC season. Kids LOVE these feet!


JRC is scheduled to start, Wednesday, September 13th and will continue on Mondays and Wednesdays through November weather permitting. Spring Season starts up after Spring Break. If your child is interested in running, please print the contract/waiver and send it back to school. Kids will only be allowed to run if they wear appropriate running footwear. This is at the request of Jefferson School and required in order to keep students safe. 


In order for Running Club to be a success, we need parent volunteers. Anyone is welcome, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles. Bring them all to cheer on the kids. Click here and fill your name in on the days and times you can come.  It is broken up into 3 separate time slots.  They correspond with the lunch recess of each grade. The first section is for the 1st and 2nd grade recess (11:30-11:55), 2nd section is the 3rd and 5th grade recess (12:00-12:25) and 3rd section is for the 4th grade recess (12:30-12:55).  See you on the course!
